From the Desk of … Melissa McDaniel

This week I asked writer and tNYpress editor Melissa McDaniel to share a picture and talk about one item on her desk.

The desk of Melissa McDaniel

My typewriter was a gift from the Craigslist gods. The guy who sold it to me mistakenly believed that it was broken, so I got it for an insanely low price. It’s an Omega 30 from the 1970s, and although it has its fair share of quirks, I love it because it’s mineand because it’s an adorable shade of blue. Writing on a typewriter requires a different type of thinking than writing on a laptop or in a notebook. It’s totally changed my relationship with words and sentences. – Melissa McDaniel
